Ah phooey! Yellow is good as any in my opinion they're all like grits.. without seasoning they aren't much. Butter for sure. I throw cabbage and cauliflower in with it maybe even broccoli ..... a little onion. It's all good.

Well now grillin' them I've yet to try. Hard to add much taste there. Except for seasoning. Cook them in a pan on the grill and add suggested ingredients. Call me when it and the rib-eyes are ready! Have a good week yourself!

PS: I leave skin on but those orange squash gotta peel!

I'm with you there...I find it hard to like yellow/summer squash, but I love zucchini. The only way I really like it is in a casserole like this one:

Dixie Cafe Baked Squash Recipe - Food.com - 377706

I could eat grilled zucchini every day and not get tired of it.

I love yellow summer squash. One of my favorite, and unhealthy, ways is to fry it. Slice it, dip in egg, and bread crumbs. Cracker meal is best if you can find it. Fry in a pan with oil. Drain. Dash of salt while its cooling. Absolutely delicious.

I only fix this once a summer as a treat.

I put it in my stir fry, with brocolli, snow peas, peppers, and onions. My daughter makes a low carb "lasagne", slicing the zukes and yellow squash the long way, into lasagne noodle shaped strips, then layers them with the filling and sauce and bakes it like you would a regular lasagne. It's delicious and different. I also put it in my "kebabs", either veggie or with meat. I put chunks of yellow squash, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, peppers, onions, and beef cubes on a skewer and grill on the barbecue. For vegetarian guests, I make them without meat, or as a side dish to barbecued steak or chicken.

There are some more ideas here:
//www.city-data.com/forum/recip...ow-squash.html



I am also getting ready to make Yellow Summer Squash Relish:





Prep: 1 hour + marinating Process: 15 min. Yield: 24 Servings


10 cups shredded yellow summer squash (about 4 pounds)
2 large onions, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
6 tablespoons canning salt
4 cups sugar
3 cups cider vinegar
1 tablespoon each celery seed, ground mustard and ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Directions
In a large container, combine the squash, onions, green pepper and salt. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Drain; rinse and drain again.
In a Dutch oven, combine the sugar, vinegar and seasonings; bring to a boil. Add squash mixture; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Carefully ladle hot mixture into six hot pint jars, leaving 1/2-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner. Refrigerate remaining relish for up to 1 week. Yield: 6 pints.

you can do like younglisa suggested if you have a lot of it: the yellow relish is very much like a zuke relish. If you don't want to make relish, I like to either just saute it with onions and a few spices or use in a cassarole with other squash. My cassarole is a little different than Lubby's but the same idea. I use stove top stuffing, a lot of squash, (barely cooked and drained to remove some of the liquid) onions, mushrooms, cream of mushroom soup or cream fo chicken) eggs and cheese. if you want to have a little kick, you can add a chopped jalapeno or 2 or some chile flakes. pour into a baking dish, top with cheese and bake for about 1/2 hour.
